Civ 5. Fear the Turtle & Seoul Power (136-137/176)

136. Fear the Turtle. Win the Korean Scenario as Korea
137. Seoul Power. Win before 100 turns as any power

In the Samurai Invasion of Korea I won the scenario as Korea, I won by year 1607 and I used less than 100 turns for sure.

I let Japan to take my coastal cities while I was fortifying Seoul with all units I could get. I put 3 Hwach’a units in the mountains and I think was the key to stop the invasion as this special unit is very powerful against melee units.

I managed to build a couple of cannons after the first wave of Samurais that helped me to recover all my cities very easily.

Civ 5. New Replay option available

Just when I started to think I was mastering the game I found the latest update a good improvement.

A very nice surprise, as part of today’s update, there is now a Replay option at the end of the game, I love that feature from Civ 1.

This is a sample graph from the game I just finished:

I like the bonus you get from finishing all policy trees, my city grow huge and my science was supreme, Mech Inf vs crossbowmen

Civ 5. This was their Finest Hour (132/149)

132. This was their Finest Hour. Win as Anglo-Saxon England (any difficulty)

In the Viking scenario win as England. It was harder than I expected, there is an invasion from the other 3 civilizations trying to capture London.

They come from North, East and South, the number of their soldiers are 3 times defense of England, I managed to survive after I started to buy Longhorns archers.

Civ 5. Tomb Rider (130/149)

130. Tomb Rider. Pillage gold from an Egyptian city with a burial tomb in it.

Today’s update effectively corrected the problem where this achievement was not fired.

To get this achievement I took an Egyptian city, it had a gold mine outside the city (I’m not sure if that is required).  City was captured using a setup game at industrial era, this way I was sure the Egyptian had the burial tomb in it.

Civ 5. Model of a Moderna Major-General (129/149)

129. Model of a Modern Major-General. Train all Units, across any number of playthroughs.

Today’s update effectively corrected the problem where this achievement was not fired because of Lancer unit not counted.

To get this one you need to build all units, start with any civilization you like and play through all eras, build all units in each era.

Then start a new game for each other civilization using advance options to start in the era where the special unit is located, for example to create the missing Lancer I created a game in Industrial era to have the unit available right away.
